KRIOPIGI, Greece – Greek researchers said Wednesday they had discovered a well-preserved skull of 5 million-year-old primate.
"It's an important find because it's in such good condition," Evangelia Tsoukala, a professor of geology at Thessaloniki University who is heading the excavation, told state-run NET television.
"It had a tail ... it was herbivorous, and the skull is intact as well as the teeth," she said.
Local officials said they hope to build a museum in the area to put the skull and other prehistoric animal remains found at the site on display.
